Understanding Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
The development is carpal tunnel syndrome is a growing problem among individuals who work at jobs that require them to do repetitive motions with the wrist and hand. This problem offer occurs among workers who sit at computer keyboards for long periods during the workday. The resulting stiffness, tingling, pain, and numbness is known as “carpal tunnel syndrome” because the motions affect the carpal tunnel, a narrow tube constructed of eight bones that contain nerves that run to the hands. The tendons that help to control the movement of the fingers become swollen, pinching the nerves within this “tunnel” and causing pain. Carpal tunnel problems can have a serious negative impact on your ability to perform work tasks efficiently.
Chiropractic Techniques Offer Conservative Treatment
Conventional treatments for carpal tunnel syndrome include taking anti-inflammatory drugs, receiving steroid injections or possible surgery that may require many weeks for recovery. Chiropractic treatment offers a different option that doesn’t require drugs and avoids invasive surgery. Your chiropractor can offer relief from symptoms, without drugs and without long recovery periods.
